TAKING YOU THERE:

Newport Folk 2011: Mavis Staples, Live In Concert (NPR, 8/01/11)

[S]he also possesses an incredibly easy-going and pleasant nature that makes her a natural star on stage -- she's like the mayor of gospel music. Staples' newest album, 2010's You Are Not Alone, was recorded with the aid of a younger icon, Wilco's Jeff Tweedy. Hear Staples perform live at the 2011 Newport Folk Festival in Newport, R.I.
